Managing Your Stress Through Float Therapy

Often today’s society thrives on performance and often we feel competitive in our tasks and sometimes end up competing with ourselves. We look for validation from how other people perceive us. In our pursuit of approval from our peers, we forget to take care of ourselves. This way of thinking leads to an increase in our stress levels, draining us physically, mentally and emotionally.

There are lots of ways to cope with stress. Many people use breathing exercises. Some turn to meditation. One of the emerging methods of coping with stress is float therapy, which helps in achieving a state of tranquillity.

This state of tranquillity can only be reached once you manage to completely relax. To completely relax is to calm both your mind and body. When your mind is calm, your body reacts by loosening the tension in your muscles. In the same way, when your body is not tense, it’s easier for your mind to be at peace. Achieving a balance of the two will let you completely relax and unwind.

Float therapy helps you achieve this balance easily and effortlessly. With float therapy, you become completely cut off from sensory experiences, such as sight, sound, and smell. This sensory deprivation has been shown to lower cortisol levels, increase creativity and relieve muscle tension.

Since your mind is free from the constant bombardment of outside stimuli through your senses, it can now focus on inner healing. Your mind reaches the theta state, allowing it to rest and rejuvenate without unnecessary strain. Also, your cells and tissues regenerate at a much faster speed, restoring your body to its optimal form.
